Another source for good cable to use for this kind of stuff is at any good marine supply. You can buy battery cable by the foot, in a good selection of gauges and colors, for a fairly reasonable price. You can usually find the stuff by the foot on eBay too, in the marine supplies.

Knu also has a flexible version of that cable, which is what I used. It's listed as pure copper and they do mention it is good for marine applications. I didn't realize until you brought it up that their non-flexible cable wasn't 100% copper.

I have had no issues to date with the terminals, and as far as I can tell the wire has held up good, if it had failed I would call the owner(he is in my phone, and another close friend that was in my wedding works/helps there when needed). As for performance, I still get slight drops when I am really getting after it with my system, and that includes adding a 145 amp alternator, the wire it self looks good no frays or splits that I have seen, I have checked under the hood every few months for tightness and melting and have noticed none.
